Printed Wireless Humidity Sensors for Moisture Detection in Buildings (Printed Electronics Europe 2013)

Dr Isak Engquist, Associate Professor
Linköping University

Presentation Summary

• We present a humidity sensor label that is fully printed on a flexible substrate with a R2R-patterned antenna
• The label is passive and can be read out from inside a wall, using a dedicated reader
• The presentation will describe principle of operation, manufacturing issues, and possible user scenarios.
The sensor labels have been developed in a joint project between Linköping University, Acreo AB, and some other participants.
